Hook them up if the motor runs backwards switch one set. Its sersorless. That's how I have done it.

I don't believe you can run a sensorless motor like a Castle on a Novak ESC. Has to be a sensored motor, and the wires must be in the correct order, they can not be changed. Plus the sensor wires.

Sorry missed that it was a havoc pro. You are better off getting a sensored motor to run with that esc.
